Shockwave Therapy is a cutting-edge sports medicine therapy designed to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Shockwaves are rapid and powerful pressure waves that can move through liquids, solids, and gases and create a variety of biological responses. Shockwave therapy has been shown to reduce pain, break down scar tissue, and repair soft tissue damage. Contact our Tempe AZ chiropractic clinic to learn more.


How is Shockwave Therapy used?

At Axis Spine and Spor,t we utilize soft tissue therapy primarily to treat soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The pressure waves stimulate a profound healing rate in tissues 1-2 inches under the surface of the skin, making it ideal for these types of conditions. The treatment is very targeted and forces can be applied directly to the problem area of the patient. If a patient has an acute condition such as a traumatic injury or new repetitive stress injury, a protocol can be used to reduce the turnaround time to heal the issue and to reduce pain and inflammation during this time. For chronic conditions, Shockwave Therapy can be used to stimulate a healing response to repair damaged tissue and supplement an exercise program to supercharge the recovery process.
